Brittany and Mike

Brittany and Mike love the outdoors. They rock climb and love to go long boarding together. They said American Fork Canyon was a place they always go to hang out so we went there to take their engagements. We also stopped by Memory Grove because that was the place Mike proposed to Brittany. These two were so incredibly cute together and were willing to do anything I wanted including to get a great shot by this road on the way to Memory Grove that had a beautiful view of the mountains. Some of those are my personal favs. I can't wait for their wedding!

Humane Society Day 2

This was our second time visiting the Humane Society. The first time we went we were only able to photograph most of the dogs. This time we got some cats too. Let me just say that cats are much easier to photograph!

It's pretty funny when I'm driving on I-15 and see some of my photos on their billboard :) Also, they used my photo of Mika on their website as pet of the week! Yay!

Here's Mika



This is Diamond. She is a Saint Bernard. When I first saw her I thought she was gonna be a pill to handle. Actually she was so gentle and so good on the leash and didn't pull at all. My husband was relieved about that!


Gracy(i love that name!) just chillin.


This is Henny. She is a pit bull but is seriously one of the sweetest dogs I've met there. I think pit bull's get a bad rep and thats a shame because Henny is so sweet and loving. I would adopt her but I already have two dogs as it is. I really hope she goes to a good home soon! We took her glamour shot the first time we visited the Humane Society.

One Light Workshop

The One Light Workshop by Zack Arias was an amazing experience. I mean, wow. This was my first workshop so I didn't really know what to expect. Zack put me at ease with his wonderful teaching and patience. His work is just breathtaking. Please visit his site here. Davina Fear hosted the workshop and I just want to give a big THANK YOU to her for convincing him to come here.

The workshop was literally all day. It started from 9:30 am and lasted to about 1:00 am. I thought I would be dead tired by the time it was done but I actually wasn't tired at all. I wanted to learn so much more and I was soaking it all in. Zack, please come back to Utah! Yay for workshops!

I also want to give a big thank you to the models, Shanda and Randy for braving the cold and being so easy to work with.

Also I really can't take much credit for these photos. Zack set up the lighting and told us how to set our camera. I just snapped the great composition :)

Becky and Jeremy

Becky and Jeremy got sealed at the Salt Lake Temple last month. We were originally going to do pictures then but their day was so busy so we decided to do couple pictures sometime after the wedding. In a way, I was kinda glad we did their pictures now because it wasn't cold like last month! It was a beautiful day and perfect weather. I had so much fun with these two. They were constantly laughing and joking and that always makes for great pictures.

When I met Dari yesterday I knew the photoshoot was gonna be a blast. She is such a fun, easy going person and we got along great! She brought along two of her friends(one of them I'm doing her engagement shoot later this month, watch for that!). She was pretty much up for anything so we went to some of my favorite locations.

Her bouquet by Whimsy Floral. Love, love, love her work!


Jacquee and David

I had so much fun with these two love birds. They are a photographers dream and would not take a bad photo. My husband came along and brought his camera(he is getting into videography) and filmed them being cute and interviewed them which I think was a cool idea. I wish I could have a video of Jonathan and I before we got married.

I can't wait for Jacquee's bridal shoot and their wedding in May!
